Will Arnett Cast as Sweet Tooth in Twisted Metal Series
Peacock has announced that actor Will Arnett will join the Twisted Metal live-action series as the flame-headed clown, Sweet Tooth. The iconic character from the video game franchise is notorious for his haunting look and killer ice cream truck. Arnett joins the previously cast Anthony Mackie who will lead the series.
Check out the series description below:
“Twisted Metal, a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland) about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”
The Twisted Metal series is being developed by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and will work from a script being written by Michael Jonathan Smith who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. Kitao Sakurai is set to helm multiple episodes of the series as well as executive produce alongside Mackie, Reese, Wernick, Arnett, Marc Forman, Jason Spire, Peter Principato, Asad Qizilbash, Hermen Hulst, and Carter Swan.
Twisted Metal does not currently have a release date but is expected to premiere on Peacock in 2023.
